Isn't there any backup of your vps where the wallet.dat file is still there?
But why would you even have a wallet on a VPS?

This is a good question. I would never put any sensitive information, such as private keys (whether bitcoin, PGP or other), on a system hosted by someone else.

without either the original wallet.dat or the private key there is no way you can restore a wallet, anywhere.

Username and password to what? Bitcoin doesn't have usernames.

My wallet.dat was been removed Sad
Without backup, all that's left is recovery software, but that's most likely impossible on a VPS.

Probably you will not as you have not the backup of you wallet. If you have not deleted the VPS machine yet, you may recover by mounting the disk to vps command console, if there is any.

You are not right.
For access to API for use functions need username and password.

Code:
# On client-side, you add the normal user/password pair to send commands:
#rpcuser=alice
#rpcpassword=DONT_USE_THIS_YOU_WILL_GET_ROBBED_8ak1gI25KFTvjovL3gAM967mies3E=

It's written in bitcoin wiki.

Thanks, that does make sense, but won't help to restore the wallet. ThePiachu about rpcuser:

You can set any values you want for rpcuser and rpcpassword in bitcoin.conf. Those values will be your username and password when you will be connecting to your bitcoind through HTTP JSON RPC.

Thanks.

Good luck recovering your wallet, I hope you can get it.

After though, I suggest that you implement a better solution for secure storage than just throwing a wallet.dat file on a VPS.  Businesses that host VPSs, even reputable ones, have curious techs that can look through VPS filesystems, oh you know, maybe for a file that has the name wallet.dat.

I don't know what you use Bitcoin for on a VPS but depending on the application you should move backend systems either internally (my choice) or in some other way into a much more secure setting than a VPS.

Best regards,
Ben
